I’ve made it an ugly habit of getting online without opening my Bible first. Patterns of behavior start with a simple choice. One. simple. choice. turns. into. many. ugly. choices.
Ugly choices turn into ugly, yucky, selfish habits.
And soooooo…. the old saying goes, it takes 30 days to form a new habit. Put off the old ways, put on the new, says His Word.
I’ve committed this week to start opening my BIBLE first. Not getting on my computer and opening my online Bible because for some reason my fingers type those other keys…. yahoomail, facebook, blogger… and I get swept away into fleeting, earthly things.
God has met me face to face this week. Just this morning, as I was reading His Holy Word, God OVERWHELMED ME with His love. To the point where it was fresh, living and tangible. I could almost taste Him! Psalms 34:8 says, Oh taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man that trusts in Him.
After spending some time in God’s Word and in prayer, I opened my computer and found this message from my friend Lisa,
My jaw literally dropped. God reminded me that our prayers for one another are SO important. That we are all CONNECTED in a powerful way!
And so… I will be using this tool that she uses… called PRAYERBOOK…. and using my Facebook for some good!
Linking up with THE GYPSY MAMA’S FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY.
